Vexilar battery

Recommended Posts

I am kind of in the same boat. Built a cooler radio and trying to figure out how big of a battery I need. I don't have an extra car or boat battery.

I use my deep cycle from the boat, they have lasted several years for me by doing this. also only trickle charge them.

You need more umph to keep it going. I use my lawn tractor battery for my LED lights (32') and two 12v fans. Radio will suck it down even faster. Good luck.

First off, you're probably better with a deep cycle than a standard "car" battery.

I did a google search for car stereo current draw and one figure I found was 0.5A at low volume and 1-2A for a reasonably high volume. With a 9Ah vex battery, you're talking about 18 hours at low volume down to 4.5 hours at high volume. In theory at least.

a small deep cycle will have about 60Ah, equal to 120 hours at low volume or 30 hours at high volume.

If you have the $$ and the space, I'd get a deep cycle.

I just bought a nice Bluetooth speaker for when I go out. The higher end ones can put out some nice sound. I have the jabra solemate I usually only have it half the volume it can go and it can bump.

    • Box? i don't think I've ever seen them but will be looking in a little while
    • Buy a box of cheesy tots.  Cook.   Use rack over sheet pan on grill or in oven.  😀
    • Cheesy tots sound great! Anyone got a recipe?
    • If you're feeling adventurous some time follow the same process you just explained but instead of using a rib rub try using a generous amount of Montreal Chicken seasoning with yellow mustard as your glue.  Also, try a wing or thigh before using the Famous Dave sauce.   Goof Luck
    • I took wings, thighs and legs and put rib rub on them and let them sit for 4 hours then I smoked them for about 90 minutes this morning. Tonight I put them on the grill to crisp up and slathered with Famous Dave's. I seem to kill chicken on the grill but with the smoker I can regulate better plus all that flavor. Only way I'll do chicken now!
    • The grain belt is a bigger sin.😁
    • Yes, I noticed the bottled water in the back👺
    • I did 2 racks of St. Louis style ribs on the pellet smoker yesterday, rubbed with smoky mesquite seasonings...  so good no bbq sauce was used when they were eaten!!!  did the 3-2-1 method but used different temps from the last time I did them...  started at 175 for 3 hrs, then 230 wrapped and finished unwrapped at 230...  Oh Yea!!!
